How the practice
can help you:
Our unique process of hosting specialised professional services under one roof assists in recommending the best possible treatment options for your individual situation. We also offer an individual second opinion service on any breast, thyroid and parathyroid related matter.
We are fully operational during loadshedding.
We are providing new screening services to both new and current breast and thyroid health patients. The first of which is endoscopic screening (additional services will be detailed during 2023). It is now possible to book endoscopic screening during your breast or thyroid related appointment.

What our patients say
“During this traumatic time and pandemic, our lives are often surrounded by fear. In December 2020, I had to see Dr Apffelstaedt for an important visit. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well Covid-19 processes are monitored and managed at the practice. The doctors and all staff adhere to these same protocols. Even whilst having a mammogram, ultrasound or any other visits, COVID protocols are strictly adhered to. I am grateful to the team for making sure that it is always a relaxed and safe experience.”
“In May 2020 I discovered a small lump in my breast. In the following weeks I had to visit Dr Apffelstaedt quite a few times. I was pleasantly surprised by the efficiency and strict protocols adhered to by the friendly staff and doctors, in spite of the difficult circumstances caused by Covid-19. I would encourage you to stay healthy by keeping your appointments regularly. I am certainly very glad I did.”

IOL – World Thyroid Day
Many South Africans are still unaware of what the thyroid is, let alone the impact of thyroid cancer. This lack of awareness makes it challenging for individuals to detect and diagnose thyroid diseases early, which can significantly affect their chances of recovery. The importance of early detection and diagnosis cannot be overstated. Thyroid cancer is one of the fastest-growing cancers globally, and it affects people of all ages and genders. Early detection and diagnosis can increase the chances of successful treatment and recovery. The full article is available here.
